Alber Elbaz writes his first book

Alber Elbar Lanvin Book

Lanvin celebrates the last 10 years of Alber Elbaz’ work with the publication of their new book, Alber Elbaz, Lanvin.

The 700-page tome is a comprehensive guide to the design and production methods required to create a fashion collection.

The first several pages will remain empty, reported the Los Angeles Times, to evoke his daily creative process. “That is how I start every day,” he divulged.

The book comes in a deluxe edition featuring a handmade cover which is “bound in silk grosgrain cloth, black foil stamping on front and spine, hand-gilded edging with engraved typography, delivered in a handmade cardboard box.

Elbaz became artistic director of French fashion house Lanvin in October 2001, achieving praise for his simple, feminine collections.

The designer’s luxury book follows a growing trend for fashion houses to “open” the doors to their design methods.

Meanwhile, in October high-end shoe label Jimmy Choo released a limited edition coffee table book charting its road to success and marking 15 years in fashion.

The book is only available to pick up in person from Lanvin’s Paris flagship at 15 et 22 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
